8:19 am
becky worley with the fact check. >> reporter: if you value battery life on your phone and who doesn't, swiping up to close all those background apps is crucial, right? nope. >> wait. what? in response to a user e-mail the head of apple's mobile team is stunning the life hacking community with this little bit of info closing apps has no impact on battery life. >> this has to make a difference. sorry, it turns out background apps drain hardly any power. it's like they're cryogenically frozen and all we see a picture of the last thing they did. they're not denying the content. over at android headquarters, aka google the story is pretty much the same. >> there is a big myth on phones we have to swipe away applications to save battery and this is just completely not true. >> reporter: both app the and google have optimized their mobile operating systems to neutralize power hungry apps, in
8:20 am
>> swiping them away will cost you possibly more battery than save you battery life. >> reporter: there are a few exceptions, gps that's actively popping up turn by turn directions and in some cases music, but you heard it here first, stop the swipe and find new ways to extend your battery life. okay. >> becky worley in the house right now. so closing apps, does or doesn't help. >> you heard it from google and apple. these charged to 100%, this one running 25 different apps and this one isn't and battery life is the same. >> what is doing it. >> it's your screen. so, look, let me show you. if you go into the settings you'll see that what we've got here is display and brightness. this is a huge light bulb that sucks power. turn auto brightness on or turn this all the way -- you know below half, at least. auto brightness. >> can i turn yours down a
8:21 am
>> get it all the way down. >> i want to save you some battery. >> so then auto-lock. you don't need your phone to be on for two minutes after you check facebook so turn that down to 30 seconds. then notifications, every time they pop up, then they light up your screen so turn that off. >> this is all in my settings, go to notification, brightness, time lock thing. >> i've got so many tips. it's all on the website >> on abcnews.com. >> yep. >> okay, great article by becky worley and one last thing, it's not necessarily how fast it's draining, it's how you're charging it. >> some of the new devices ten minutes. nexus, ten minutes plugged in, four hours battery life. that's your next phone. >> so get -- so you're now a pitchman. okay. >> yes, charging. extra fast. >> check out the article. ten great tips on how to save your battery. becky worley, our tech genius, we thank you.

8:23 am
lilly took a picture of us and changed the screen with her notion. i've never seen that before because she gloves on. good tip. >> so did it save battery? >> yeah. >> i thought she was turning down brightness with her nose, wow. now, that's a talent. "pop news" time and i think we can agree a slow loading web page can get your wheels turning but that can cause, right, real physical problems. a report from the tech company ericsson found that web loading delays result in a 38% increase in heart rate, waiting for a video to buffer generally raises stress levels by 34%. >> come on. >> that's the equivalent of the anxiety you feel when watching a horror movie. that is according to this study so if you feel like going psycho the next time your netflix binge-watch is interrupted, you're not being totally dramatic, screaming and scientific fact. >> that's good.

8:25 am
time and $500 for those repeat spreaders. >> what? >> the law comes on the heels of new york's own campaign which is lovingly called stop the spread. >> are you being serious? >> yes. >> really? >> this is real. >> it makes me really mad when you see all those people standing. >> have i given you any news you can use? >> is it equal opportunity. if a woman takes up two seats? with our purse and our bag. >> yes, yes. >> it is, it is, it is. >> yes. >> stop the spread. stop the spread. >> amy is a real subway rider. >> i ride it every day. i'm very passionate about it. >> watch out, manspreaders. i'll write the ticket. >> then finally, everybody, well, over 2 million people were right here in new york city watching our st. patrick's day parade yesterday one midwest town celebrated the holiday in a smaller scale. it does not mean they're not having fun. conklin, michigan, proudest to
